Robin Thicke and April Love Geary welcomed baby Mia Love on 22 February
April's pregnancy news was announced in August, with the 23-year-old posting a photo of her sonogram on her Instagram account, revealing that Mia was due on 1 March – the same birthday as Robin's late father Alan Thicke's birthday. "Robin and I are very excited to share with you all that were having a baby. The due date is March 1st, Alan's birthday!" she told her fans. Alan died suddenly in December 2016, after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey with his 20-year-old son Carter. In the wake of his loss, Robin took to Instagram to pay tribute to the Growing Pains star.

In December, Robin posted a poignant message, telling fans to "hold on tight to the ones you love," which was accompanied by a photo of himself as a little boy standing next to his father. Robin's father shared a close relationship with his son's girlfriend, and had spoken about her to E! News in 2015: "She's lovely. [He has an] album coming out and April is there and supportive. We like her a lot." Of the couple's 18 year age difference, Alan's wife Tanya added: "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! She's a very mature young lady. A very beautiful, smart, mature young lady."
